Matthew Sullivan - Matthew
Very much in complement with Recital's other April 2019 release - R.I.P Hayman's seafaring Dreams of India & China - Matthew is also a travelers log, albeit a more personal one. As Matthew Sullivan gently turns the pages of his audio journal, slivers of stories from his life (so far)'s odyssey seep out. The repeated choral refrain in "Pigeon" hangs veil-like over this collecting of sonic moments, and leaves a lasting effect. "Dying Woman on the Plane" is like being inside a whale, feelings its soft corners and listening to its flickering eco-system.
